Michelin introduces new tire for ag market

Michelin's new tire features improved ride, better traction.

Michelin North America is introducing an extension of its popular AgriBib tire lineup later this year.

The new Michelin AgriBib 480 95 R50 model is a taller-sized, rear fitment tire designed primarily for larger, front-wheel assist tractors to handle bigger loads. It also can be used in a row-crop application on large, four-wheel drive machines.

James Crouch, farm segment marketing manager for Michelin North America, said the Michelin AgriBib 480 95 R50 model features improved ride quality compared to competitive products, long lasting tread, better traction and impressive clean-out.

Michelin will partner with John Deere and Case New Holland on the launch into the North American market, which is expected to take place in the fourth quarter of 2014. The new model will initially be available on new equipment purchases, and shortly thereafter as a replacement tire.
